Born on September 2nd, 1955 in Jersey City, New Jersey, I've been active in photography since receiving my first camera, a Kodak Instamatic, at the tender age of eight.
I soon discovered that pointing my camera in the direction of my subject could inspire them to do amusing and interesting things. When I later discovered that some of these subjects were willing to disrobe, I knew I was onto something! I soon uncovered many an exhibitionist lurking within a conservative fašade. Yes, I've shot some weddings and portraits, but I've long since learned that I prefer Glamour and Erotic Photography. Perhaps you'd care to have me point my camera in your direction?
My photographs have appeared in a calendar, some magazines, posters and advertising. My photos have been published within THE MAMMOTH BOOK OF EROTIC PHOTOGRAPHY and featured extensively in Jade Magazine (from Great Northern Publishing located in the United Kingdom). Currently in print are:
WARRIOR PRINCESS -
The Erotic Fantasy Photography of Michael Alan Grapin
EROTIC DREAMS AND NIGHTMARES -
